Dumpling walk with ONA Bags

Last week, I joined ONA bags and a few photographer friends to stroll through Chinatown. We met up at Mimi Cheng's dumpling house and wandered through the streets, eventually making our way to Nom Wah Tea House for some tasty dim sum. 

Big thanks to the awesome crew over at ONA for having us out, and especially for the tasty food!

Passport Express, Post 1 of 3: The People

It's been almost 3 months since I embarked across the country by rail with Amtrak, Passion Passport and 34 other creatives, makers, philanthropists and generally incredible people. Needless to say, the journey was the experience of a lifetime and I'm honored to have had the chance to see the country in this manner, experiencing the intimacy & pace of cross-country train travel, and becoming a part of the lives of my fellow travelers.

Although words and images will never suffice to describe the experience, this week I wanted to share a bit about the trip in 3 parts: The People, The Places, and The Train.

To begin, I wanted to highlight the faces of my travel companions. When the trip began, I had no idea that I would focus the majority of my photography on the people I was with. By the end of the trip though, the reason was clear: being in the presence of people so dedicated to their craft, their life's work and the support of each other was creatively inspiring. I found myself wanting to photograph their beautiful faces every waking moment, of every single day.

As I share my posts this week, please feel free to ask me any questions about the trip! And be sure to check out the #PassportExpress hashtag on Instagram to see everyone's photos.
